My 2 cents regarding crosscompiling to Haiku:

The original binutils from gnu do not support haiku directly. The point is that the Haiku project hosts its own modified version of the binutils, which have not been backported to the gnu source. The Haiku binutils are also not the most recent version. However, the modifications are minor. Using a  diff of the Haiku and the original version, I was able to patch the recent version of the binutils. I did this on Mac OS X, but it should serve as a base of a crosscompiler on any other platform. I did not do any further tests, since there was no real feed back, that actually anyone was interested in this and i had some other stuff to do.

If anyone is interested in building a crosscompiler, I could still provide the patch file.
